You can program your M3 yourself with our E-Flash OBD interface. There is no need to find a local dealer when it comes programming. PM me if you want more info.

The HEX flash OBD2 cable is also avaialble. Here's a video overview of the flash/reflash process:



Kit consists of OBD2 Flash cable and HEX software suite, backup and flash tuning is performed by the end user. More info can be found in the sponsor's section and our website.

Feel free to contact us directly if you should have any questions.

All the tuners have a cable or handheld device you can buy and use to flash your tune now. Just decide on the tune you want, whether AA, Evolve, ESS, Gintani/OE, VFE, etc.

I'm pretty sure that Gintani is no longer affiliated with OE. They do there own custom tunes and I've had great experience with them

I have personally never dealt with nor ridden in a car with an OE tune so I can't comment. I would say just call some of these company's and speak with them. Get a feel for the people you are talking to and then go with whom ever you feel comfortable.
